ConvaTec offers ostomy products for patients who have had either a colostomy, an ileostomy or a urostomy. The company's website, ConvaTec.com, offers users a product selector tool to ensure they choose the right product for their particular surgery. ConvaTec's ostomy products incorporate proprietary Moldable Technology to prevent leaks and protect skin. The company also offers complementary products, including skin care products and Ostomysecrets specialty clothing.

ConvaTec's wound care products use Aquacel, a compound that interacts with wound fluids to form a gel. This gel creates a protective environment to promote faster wound healing. Aquacel reduces surgical site infections by up to 76 percent.

Skin care products in the ConvaTec line are designed to protect skin and reduce pressure ulcers. Aloe Vesta skin care products help to maintain the integrity of the skin, and Sensi-Care products protect the skin from stool residue.

Continence and critical care products are designed to prevent leakage and protect against nosocomial infections. This category also includes catheters, urine meters and intra-abdominal pressure monitoring devices. All ConvaTec products are DEHP-free, as studies have shown that DEHP can reduce testosterone production and damage semen quality.
